David,
Sounds like you are having fun with AO-40 and the many fun aspects of
Satellite Ham Radio. If you have not already, you'll want to join AMSAT and
take advantage of the wealth of knowledge that awaits you. It is a great
bunch of very smart people. Lots of great information and you will be
helping all of us get more metal in the sky.

See you on AO-40.
